Big Company Should Never Sue Future Young Geniuses. Sony Vs. Geo Hotz.

Big company should never sue young geniuses of the world they should sue someone their own size instead. Why? Because one they’re young they got no money to pay you it just makes you look like a bully and really stupid in the community. Also it can damage your company brand you don’t want to offend the geniuses community because there are a lot of smart people out there that can really screw with your company if they really wanted to just for fun. Rather than trying to sue them you should try to hire them instead. Bring them to your company campuses woo them with benefits and salary to work for you. If you don’t then your competitor or other company will. Case in point  Johnny Lee Wii Remote. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd3-eiid-Uw Did Nintendo sue him because he hacked the Wii remote no. Microsoft we ended up bringing him to campus and hiring him on the spot. Microsoft did not sue these people when they started to hack the KINECT sensor. Modification and hacking of existing product is very crucial and essential for improvement and future innovation breakthrough. Look at the KINECT mod projects Microsoft did not discourage hacking of the sensor but rather encouraged it. http://redmondmag.com/articles/2011/03/21/microsoft-kinect-hacks.aspx

If there were no hacker or modder to tink around with devices and invention these projects would not come to be. Some of the greatest mind and inventor are tinker, hacker, modder Thomas Edison for example hacked the telegraph. So when Sony decided to sue Geo Hotz for hacking and moding their PSN system.

It really offended a lot people. For one thing he is only 21 he is not going to have money to pay your court case and lawyer fees. How can you sue the first person that unlock and jailbreak the very first iphone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Hotz When Sony decided to go through with the lawsuit they really pissed off and offended a lot of the hacker community. Now they are paying for it when their 77 million users credit card are hacked and being sold online. Look at the flood of stream of article about the latest breach. Just do a search on any search engine.

This is going to cost Sony millions if not billions to patch all 77 million account which has been compromised. The bottom line is don’t sue young geniuses especially when you know it does more damage to your company system and brand than good. Companies should learn from these events and should not continue with these practices of suing future young geniuses. I mean where would the world technology be today if it weren’t for these geniuses. In the beginning Gates and Zuckerberg were pirates, hackers, coders without them today there would be no Microsoft or Facebook. If you’re going to sue anybody make sure they’re big enough to pay you. So go line up your lawyers to sue people or company like Apple Amazon or the Gates and Zuckerberg of today if you dare you’ll just be a number on their list. When they get to the court room they will just toy with your lawyers and give them the run around.
